Barrett's Esophagus Translational Research Network (BETRnet) Pilot

All faculty members at participating institutions are invited to submit applications for Individual or Cross-BETRNet pilot projects of up to $40,000 to be funded by NIH/NCI U54CA163060: Genetic Determinants of Barrett's Esophagus and Esophageal Adenocarcinoma.

Proposals must conform to the following guidelines and must be submitted via Webgrants (see link below):

  1. Cover page listing contact information for PI and faculty collaborators
  2. Proposal (5 pages) in length (excluding references) as follows:
    • Specific aims (1 page)
    • Background and Significance (1-2 pages)
    • Experimental Design (2-3 pages)
  3. NIH biosketches for all faculty participants
